"Holy Toledo!"

January 9, 2015

Bill King Vintage Radio Broadcasts & Other Great Games of the Past

There is nostalgic comfort that warms a room when a radio is tuned to a baseball game. One doesn’t need to sit anxiously on every pitch to enjoy it’s melodic tempo. Sometimes just having a game on in the background is an orchestra in itself.

Here you go Radio Heads!
This is my entire collection of actual radio broadcasts, includes football, baseball, & basketball.

Having never really set out to collect radio broadcasts, these were item I acquired in trade. At this time I’m not seeking anything audio only, with the exception being Bill King broadcasts. I know many of you love to collect these so I list them in hope you might have a trade offer that I can’t resist. Never assume the answer is no without at least asking.
